Fashion dork?




I usually don't talk about fashion, because I don't really know that much about it. I just know what I like and if I'm lucky enough to find it... I try to snatch it up:) Well this hat is my latest little find. I loved it. Found it at Patina the other day and knew immediately it was me;) When I tried it on for Honey, he called me a dork:o Nothing can deflate a person faster than thinking they look all cute and then wham the dork comment comes out. What do you think?? This is a loaded question I know but, do I look like a dork?




Look
really close. See those glittery birds in our hair...now that is dorky. See I know what dorky is:)





I
remember the first time I walked into an Anthropologie store. I felt like the "mothership" had come for me and I was finally home! It was all things artsy, creative and different. The bedding was colorful and quirky. The clothes were beautiful and expressive. I just fell in love.






Then
I looked at the price tags and my love affair came to a screeching halt. WHY? Why...when I finally find the store that could possible define my style does it have to be out of my reach financially?? Oh well...sniff, sniff. Even though I only buy things that are on clearance 75% off or $30.00 or less, it hasn't dampened my enthusiasm for browsing. I actually get a little short of breath and teary eyed when I walk through the doors. That's a little sick I know....all that to say I was in there this week and found some great leggings. It is my lame attempt at being trendy. Have to say I love them. Nothing like wearing pajama type clothing and getting by with it;)





What is your latest fashion find?





Have a blessed day.

  1. You always look gorgeous to me so I cannot possibly comment on whether your hat is dork-like or not!!

    I also bought a hat this week - it's purple and I love it, I have barely taken it off....but after a long time thinking I didnt' suit hats....while I love it, I am not even going to ask anyone else their opinion!! I did notice my husband giving it an odd look though!!

    Oh well, I love it and that's all that matters :)

    Anthropologie has just opened this last week in London.....finally I can see what I have been missing.

    Happy Week-end honey xo

  3. Dorkie is not a word I would use to describe you at all! That hat is adorable on you ~ it really is. I made my first trip into Anthro while we were in NYC and it was finally good to see what all the fuss was about. I fell in love when I walked in the door ~ I am both happy and sad that we do not have the store here!! Have a wonderful week-end Becky!

  4. To you Miss Becky....What I would call you is real. You are the real deal. I think things or like things and think what would others think before buying this or wearing this. One day I got fed up being less than authentic to me, to God, to the world. I find you in a word "Refreshing" you take the veils off of fakeness and are "Beautiful" and "True". So, if some moments you feel dorky, or classic, or fun, or totally silly goofy...what you are gonna get from you is REAL and that is what we all desire to be. So to you "There can never be a more Beautiful You." from that song. I mean that. Thank you for you Becky! Thank you for being a testimony for me too to learn to be authentic. Awesome to me you are!

    Happy, Beautiful Day To You!

  6. That hat is not dorky. I love it.
    Now the glittery bird thing......that's different.

  7. Aww, the hat looks cute! You look good in hats! Me on the other hand, not quite sure. I think my head is too small, lol!

    I feel the same way about Anthropologie! Even though I've never bought anything from there before (!), I feel all giddy and fluttery when there! My husband walks around and just says, "this is so you..." I do have a couple of gift cards to use from my birthday, though!!! Woo-Hoo! :)

  8. Oh, I forgot to comment on my latest fashion find! :) That would be my big, cute sunglasses from Target! Those babies hide tired, mascara smudged eyes like a charm when running kids to school in the morning, lol! :) All for $12 too!!

  9. It's a good thing I haven't set foot in an Anthropologie yet! I don't have a good fashion sense but I found a cute 3/4 length shirt dress in brown corderouy at Old Navy for 50% off that works for my growing tummy! Love the hat and think it will be adorable for the holidays. :)

  10. That hat is so not dorky!! I think you must wear it every day all winter long.

    My kids think that my handknit socks are dorky. But what do they know.

  11. How cute is that hat! And not dorky at all! I love it...and your outfit is ADORABLE too...I feel the same about fashion....I'm not great at it...and feel the same about Anthro in every way you mentioned...my new thing of this year is to wear more dresses ~ I was doing great until fall hit and now I'm stuck again ~ I did a post way back about my journey with dresses and was just thinking I should do an update on my fall finds...I'm a work in progress for sure when it comes to clothes...as far as a fashion find ~ I'm still looking myself:)

    ReplyDelete
  12. I love Anthropologie, too. But the prices - yeah, they don't agree with me either. It's been a long time that I've been to one...although, that's probably a good thing.

    Latest fashion find? uhmmm. It's probably something I've been creating/designing for someone else, and not myself.

  13. Not dorky at all! Think you look very cool!

  14. Not dorky. Especially if you love it -- that's the only rule that matters in my book. And congrats on the fun find at Anthro! You know how I LOOOOOOVE that store...

  15. You look ADORABLE!!! LOVE the hat! and I feel the same about Anthro.- I just keep hoping my "money tree" I planted will bloom! :)
    Have a great weekend!
    Blessings!

  17. You are too cute for words, you need to wear what you like and i think that HAT is all you! I walked into Anthro the other day and thought this store is totally Becky!! All the color...when I think of you I think of color, and I LOVE Me some color!! Your outfit is adorable, so is your smile...rock it girl! Happy weekend!

  18. I like-y like-y the hat! And I look identical to your pic today, except skinny jeans instead of the leggings. I didn't know 80's fashion could look so good in 2009...keep doin' your own fashion thing momma. It is what makes us -US!

  19. You absolutely do not look like a dork! More like a cute chick:) I think ya gotta tell hubby he was wrong;)

  20. I too have a love affair with Anthropologie. I am so with you on the price issue. I only purchase if I have a gift card or the super sale stuff. I actually posted about my new little Anthro. beauty. My new out of my comfort zone items were skinny jeans and boots. I thought my hubby would say dork with them. Surprisingly, he thought I looked hip. Woohoo! Nancy

  21. Here's my two cents: I think you look CUTE! Clearly, it's not a hat you'd wear out to a nice dinner or to the ballet or something. But with the right casual outfit, I think you can pull that hat off b/c you have a fun and creative personality. And I love the leggings outfit. I am LOVING the comeback of the legging. I didn't get too into the first time around b/c I was in elementary school and my mom still made me wear dorky dresses with big huge hairbows. Leggings are awesome!

  22. Love the hat!! So darling. I love anthro, maybe too much. I recently found a sweater dress there, and I look at it online everyday so tempted to buy it for myself. It's over $100, and at the holidays spending money on myself feels really wrong, but I WANT it!! I have only recently been working on my fashion as a request from my hubby...so I started wearing leggings, and I love them. What can I say, I am so trendy...NOT!

    ReplyDelete
  23. Nope I don't see it... not dorky at all. You look as cute as can be! I awoke this morning needing some clothes.. my closet looks bleak... I'm headed out shopping this evening, by myself... can't wait!
    xo,

  24. You are adorable and that hat is darling! I totally feel your pain about Anthro. My latest fashion find are skinny jeans. I swore I would NEVER wear them again after the 80's but they look darn cute with my boots tucked in. I hope you have a wonderful weekend and I hope it's chilly enough to wear that hat!!!

    ReplyDelete
  25. i really think you look adorable in that hat! and maybe the bird clip is dorky but you look stunning in that photo! and I LOVE your new outfit! I agree that Anthro is like the mother ship calling us home! :)

  26. Wear it, Work it!
    You are one of those horrible people who look great in anything!
    Enjoy!

  28. I think that hat is adorable! Isn't fashion all about wearing what you love and what you feel comfortable in? :)

    ReplyDelete
  29. In my opinion Anthropologie is for inspiration. Then I search out the items in other places. Oh how I love it there.

    ReplyDelete
  33. No. Does that answer your question? Your cherry cap would have come in perfectly handy today...I went out a walking in a winter wonderland!

    Have a great weekend!

  34. Well..since you asked, my latest fashion find was stirrup pants. Yes STIRRUP pants. It scared me that they are back. I guess they are okay if the "stirrup" is adequately concealed.

    I feel the same way you do about Anthropologie..and the price tags there.

    Thanks for your sweet comments on my blog. LOVE yours too!

    ReplyDelete
  35. Keep the cap.

    And the leggings.

    You're a knockout in both.

    Couldn't possibly be dorky.

    Had to catch up on what's going on with you.

    Yes, sometimes, I struggle with prayer.

    And time management.

    Sweet dreams.

    ReplyDelete
  36. I haven't commented here in a while - did some catching up on your posts. Loved the sunrise, cute hat, love the far left photo angle of you in the hat, wonderful post about your husband and his job, love the painting you did for your friend's housewarming. Can you really imagine your husband saying "that's cute". I think dorky is the male version for "cute".

    ReplyDelete
  37. Did that sound funky? Didn't mean it funky if it did. Sometimes, maybe they just can't say it, ya know? :) Also, I meant to tell you how sweet your prayer time post was. I just believe God knows our hearts better than anyone and we can simply lift our heart to Him and He hears and well, He loves it. See ya next time 'round. Jenn

  38. Nope, not dorky....you are rockin' that hat, lass. I love it when someone sais "I saw this dress today, Helen and it was so YOU! You need to go see it"! I betcha people say that to you, don't they? xx

    Favourite fashion find recently, which on description sounds manky but is actually really lovely. I found an amazing purple belt with brushed metal stones and a large purple flower in the sale for a total of £6. The original price for both was £60. Purple is the colour for me this winter. :O)

  39. Seriously, I could not wear that cute hat, but YOU my dear look adorable in it!! It seems to make your smile even bigger. I can see the joy beaming from your face.

    Yes,I believe you made a great purchase. It was made just for my friend Becky!

  40. you are so NOT dorky! the bird hair clip, maybe a tad funny ;) i love your boots in the last picture...i so want a pair, super cute. and i love dresses and leggings...and uggs. i feel like i stayed in bed all day when i wear an outfit like that, super comfy!

    ReplyDelete
  41. Totally not a dork, and is that dress from shabby apple? If it is you have just inspired me to pair mine with leggings instead of knee highs!

    ReplyDelete
  42. I love your hat and NO, you don't look like a dork. Many people might, but you are beautiful and can pull off a whimsical and fun hat. Wear it proudly if it makes you smile!

    I felt the same way the first time I walked into Anthropologie. But I only browse there for inspiration and try to make the look out of cheaper clothes that have the same spirit.

    ReplyDelete
  43. You are just too cute! I love it! I'm so excited the leggings are back:) Yea!

    ReplyDelete
  44. Trust me I know fashion. I have three sisters and one of them is even going to go to fashion school next year. I can tell you right now your not a dork. The hat is not fashion forward but is trendy. I can understand the whole cherry hat thing! I have been wanting a cupcake hat but Im not going to stop because my hubby called me a dork am I. Now if he said NO WAY then I wouldn't. But go with your style!

    ReplyDelete
  45. Hey! I'm so glad I found your blog! You are super sweet... Loved your little fashion tips.

    My current find is some super-pretty-black-high-heels. I was always a chunky-heeled girl... now love some delicate, beautiful high-heels.

    Hugs,
    Traci

  47. Well I think the hat is VERY cute!!! Birdie's not so much LOL!!! And I do LOVE the outfit you put together with those leggings, I can totally tell it's "you"!! Fashion finds for me are getting a bit tricky LOL!!! Now that I have my retail store with my FAVORITE clothing designer I am wanting it all!! Which I can have what I want but then I have to much LOL!!! Gonna have to put the brakes on soon, my closet is already overflowing!!!

    ReplyDelete
  48. Not dorky at all! Cute as can be. One of my favorite things to blog about is my realization that I had turned into a fashion don't after becoming a mom. I now try sometimes to inspire with easy fashion tips that are within $$ reach. I should find a hat as cute as yours to write about!

    ReplyDelete
  49. yes...exactly how i feel in anrthro. when i walk in i feel like crying. i want to yell "YES! THis is ME!" it is freeing. i haven't ever bought any clothes there...but i feel understood when i walk in there (in my sweats) ha!
    you are not a dork.
    half the battle of looking cute is having the confidence in what you like...whether anyone else does or not.
